WW - Broken Elbow

I know I keep harping on my daughter's broken arm. But one thing I think is really modern is I needed to get her x-rays from the ER - to bring to the orthopedic Dr. - and I thought it was really cool they give it to you on a computer disc. (I just looked at this for 1st time today on my own computer)

Here is her original x-ray the day it happened. I see something right there on elbow - where I placed arrow. But the orthopedic guy said he is having a hard time seeing anything? But in the meantime she still has two weeks to wear the cast. Better safe then sorry. - Hey maybe I should be a DR. - lol.

Big Bang Theory "Soft Kitty" Review

I received a really cute product, I want to share with you guys.

Product Info:

It's official! Stylin Online, the largest online pop culture apparel retailer, has released the much anticipated “Soft Kitty” singing plush toy and t-shirt combo from CBS' ratings-busting The Big Bang Theory (items also sold separately). In one unforgettable TV moment, Sheldon teaches Penny lyrics to a song his mom sang him when he was sick. The infectious song instantly became viral sensation and fan favorite!


The officially licensed Big Bang Theory Soft Kitty t-shirt was released earlier this year and quickly became a top seller. Now this 100% cotton screen-printed shirt, offering soft stretchy
form-fitting style, is available separately or together with a brand new Soft Kitty plush - one that sings the ever-popular "soft kitty song" featured in the classic episode. Just press the paw and Soft Kitty will sweetly sing the tune - “Soft kitty, warm kitty, little ball of fur. Happy kitty, sleepy kitty, purr, purr, purr” - just like on the show.



Fully 10-inches long, this grey and pink plushie is the perfect size to snuggle with. You will be hard pressed to find a cuter plush toy or more in demand pop culture collectable combo this season!

My take on the Product:

I don't know if you guys are fans of 'The Big Bang Theory,' but I will watch this show sometimes. I really get a kick out of this show. It is so funny. 

I especially love Sheldon, he is a riot. This really cute Soft kitty is available now along with the t-shirt. They can be purchased together or separately:

Combo Women $44.99:

Combo Men $44.99-$47.99:

Soft Kitty Plush Toy Alone: $29.99

Soft Kitty Girls Shirt Alone $18.88:

I actually wasn't familiar with this episode until I watched this video, check it out - too funny

my daughter wanted the kitty:

my son wanted the t-shirt:

Check these out - they'd make nice holiday gifts!

Disclosure: I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free from sponsor. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Norton Small Business by Symantec

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Norton Small Business by Symantec for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.


Do you guys feel that internet security is important? Do you remember a time when you really wish that you had a better anti-virus software?

Well if you are a small business owner then you may know the importance of Internet security. I would like to tell you about an important product for you then. It is called Norton Small Business by Symantec. Recently there was a survey that found out what is important to small business owners. And it identified that 1 in 3 respondents claimed that internet security was of high importance to them.

New Message-494

It also was found that over half of small business owners have stated that they had experienced some malware on their computers in the past 3 years. And 51 percent of them said they they had to pay an expert to help resolve the malicious software on their computers. 

I also want to let you know right now there is a 30% discount for small business owners who purchase Norton Products. And you should also check out some new products  - 2012 Norton Small Business products now available for 30% off - These actually launched in September - Norton 360 & Norton Internet Security 2012.

I really believe in the importance of anti-virus software. And could of used it a few years ago. My computer got a virus and there was no fixing it. If I just had better security I really could have saved myself a lot of money. What about you? And which Norton product would you like to purchase? Let me know in the comments!

Zenni Optical Offers Low Cost Eyewear

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Zenni Optical for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Do you wear glasses? Well if you do, I would like to tell you about a great website to purchase some cheap eyeglasses on. It is called Zenni Optical.

If you need some eyeglasses then I would really recommend checking out this website. It is so cool that you can save some money on your glasses. Zenni Optical can give you low cost eyewear, because they have no middle man. And they also have no retail overhead and practically no advertising budget.

They operate on their satisfied customers to spread the word. I've got to get my husband to look at some glasses on there. He is the eyeglass wearer in the family. I was just looking and found these glasses:


I think these would be really cool on him! Give him some extra pizzazz! And the price is great! What do you think? Do you like these? I know he likes this shape on the lenses. And these are a little different so I think these would look really nice on him.

So go check out Zenni Optical because you really can not beat their prices. And in this economy it is important to save money anyway you can. I know I could! Especially with the holidays coming up, I need to save money for that!

Visit Branson This Fall

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Hiltons of Branson for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

This Fall is a perfect time to take a getaway to Branson, Missouri. And while you are there you could stay at the Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing or at the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel

Next time I go to Branson - I would really love to visit all the great attractions they have to offer there. Let me just share some of these so you can get an idea. There is a place called Silver Dollar City. This attraction is an 1880's themed experience. Check it out for yourself on the website, but the are having so many Holiday things going on - I want to go there!

Another attraction I will visit is The Titanic Museum! Wouldn't you want to visit there? It sounds really cool. This is a very neat Museum that really lets you experience what it was like to be on the Titanic, walk the hallways, etc. And they are having a lot of holiday festivities there too. Check it out!

I also want to tell you about the Level 2 Steakhouse. This restaurant is located within Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel. And they are also having an awesome Thanksgiving Brunch and a "Turkey to Go." In which you will be able to get everything on an awesome menu, for Thanksgiving. The brunch is $38 per person.

So go check out all the great deals & attractions going on in Branson right now. And of course like I do - I'm sure you will want to stay at the two hotels: Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing & Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel!

WW - Ballet

For 3 years my daughter took "Hip-Hop" classes. Now that we moved and she is going to a different dance school - she decided to try ballet.

She is really enjoying it. And this dance place seems to do some more fun things then the other one. Like next month they get to march in the Holiday Parade & the recital is based on a musical. They are doing "Mary Poppins." So that should be cool.

Here's a picture of her in her ballet outfit

Stand Up For Family

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of American Family Insurance for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Hi everyone! Hope you are having a fabulous day. I want to share with you a cool site I found. Check it out for yourself - over at American Family Insurance.

On there you will be able to view some videos. The videos are called Stand Up For Family. Go check them out. I just watched one. It was by Bill Bellamy and it was called Hot Water. It was a funny clip about things that happen when it's out out in Atlanta. 

These videos are provided by AmFam. And these are fun videos the whole family can watch. They are hosted by Bill Bellamy, and they feature some other of todays hot comedians. It is really family friendly comedy. And I appreciate that the whole family can enjoy it.

They want to provide stories about families. And some fun ways in which they grew up. Do you have any stories like that? If so check out the videos and compare your family to them & let me know! 

This is a really cool effort by AmFam. I feel there is not enough family friendly stuff out there. And it is always nice to see when someone is providing it! Check it out for yourself!

Check out this cool product - PackIt

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of PackIt for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Picture 17


Hey guys, I wanted tell you all about a cool product I found some information on. It is called PackIt lunch boxes. I don't know if you have heard of them or not, but I am fairly new to this product. 

This is a great invention. It was created by moms! Jeannette and Melissa created PackIt. They figured there had to be a better way to keep the kids lunches cool. And they came up with PackIt.

This lunch box/cooler will stay longer then almost any other lunch box out there. Unlike gel packs that may only last about 2 hrs. The PackIt will last up to 10 hrs! That is awesome - I think anyway. Don't you? 

I could really used one of these! I would use it for my kids lunches. My kids buy their lunch at school on some of the days. But a couple of times a week, they don't like what is going to be the lunch that day in school. So they want to bring it in. 

And I worry sometimes that they are not staying cold enough. Especially if they bring in cold cuts, you want them along with drinks too - to stay cold.

Also go now to the website to order and for $19.95 you can buy one PackIt and get one free! What would you use your PackIt for? Let me know!
